In My Hood

OOH (out of home) media is at a premium in Minneapolis. Wouldn't you expect to see such billboard advertising (sitting at 3 stories high) in New York City? But of course if you know me, you know why I snapped this photo - notsomuch for the medium as the message. It's hard to believe no one in SuperAmerica's marketing department knows the slang meaning of Hot Lunch. Well, on second thought, maybe it's not that hard to believe. Either way, thanks for giving me a giggle at the bus stop.

Where I've Been #2

Some random March day in Boston.

Where I've Been #1

The Brickyard - Indianapolis Motor Speedway. No racing, but got the track tour in a Corvette and went through the racecar museum.

I'm (Way) Below Average

Until today, that is.

According to Technorati, which now tracks over 35.3 Million blogs, 19.4 million bloggers (55%) are still posting 3 months after their blogs are created.

So now that I'm back in the game, I guess I can go back to being part of the majority. Though I don't know the stats on blog resurrection, I do have to believe that I'm part of a smaller group of "fighters" who believe it's better late than never. Kind of like the Dwayne Wade commercial for Converse, except that I've only fallen once and it took about 2 months to get up rather than 2 seconds. (In my defense, the lapse period included St. Patty's Day and a sprained ankle... unrelated incidents.) Anyway, I'm back (I think) and reporting live on - wait, what was my original vision/dream for this site... something about my life in Minneapolis. I've gotta change the heading, 'cause these next facts have nothing to do with the Salvador slogan.

Other interesting facts about blogs:

  • The blogosphere is doubling in size every 6 months
  • It is now over 60 times bigger than it was 3 years ago
  • On average, a new weblog is created every second of every day
  • Technorati tracks about 1.2 Million new blog posts each day, about 50,000 per hour
Weather in Minneapolis: Clear skies, 65 and sunny.
